About MPL Book & Film Clubs

Muncie Public Library's book and film clubs look a little bit different! Our adult book clubs are currently being held via zoom and/or in-person. Please note, clubs that meet in-person will require social distancing and masks recommended. Check the calendar for the most up-to-date information. Everyone is welcome. You do not need to have a library card or already be part of the club to join!
